Linux compat drivers compatibility package

This package provides backport support for drivers from newer kernels down to older kernels. It currently backports 3 subsystems:

  • Ethernet
  • Wireless
  • Bluetooth
  • GPU

This package provides the latest Linux kernel subsystem enhancements for kernels 2.6.24 and above. It is technically possible to support kernels < 2.6.24 but more work is required for that.


This package is documented online and has more-up-to date information online than on this README file. You should read the wiki page and not rely on this README!
